Allègrement, elle décide alors de repartir, cette fois vers le Burkina Faso, où elle séjournera deux ans et consacrera toutes ses énergies à porter secours aux démunis et à semer l’espoir auprès de ce peuple candide et proche de la nature."--Résumé de l'éditeur.

Of Water and the Spirit—Ritual, Magic, and Initiation in the Life of an African Shaman by Malidoma Patrice Somé EN

Rating: 4 (1 vote)
Description:
Maliodoma Patrice Some was born in a Dagara Village, however he was soon to be abducted to a Jesuit school, where he remained for the next fifteen years, being harshly indoctrinated into european ways of thought and worship. The story tells of his return to his people, his hard initiation back into those people, which lead to his desire to convey their knowledge to the world. Of Water and the Spirit is the result of that desire; it is a sharing of living African traditions, offered in compassion for those struggling with our contemporary crisis of the spirit.
